Your Giving at Work


LGCC believes in creating opportunities to serve and bless our local community. We believe that until we reach the person across the street, we have no business reaching someone on the other side of the globe. This is why a portion of financial contributions are directed locally, enabling us to do the work that God has called us to in our own community.

We have specific ministries we support, as well as our own initiatives that we your generous donations make possible.

Why Give?

As people of God we give because God has given so much to us. God doesn't need our money, but he does want what it represents: our purposes, passions, and priorities. 

We give to make a Kingdom impact locally, across the country, as well as globally through mission efforts.

We give to increase the Kingdom through our generosity so that others may know Jesus better!


When Jesus commissioned his disciples before His ascension, He said, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."

At LGCC, we take this command of making disciples in all nations very seriously, which leads us to giving a portion of your tithe and offerings to the work God is doing globally. We have missionaries sent from LGCC, as well as Global Partnerships living out the Great Commission all over the world.

Calling All Sewers!

Do you like to sew?

Do you own a sewing machine?

If you answered yes to either of those questions, we need your help for an outreach opportunity at the Sock Monkey Museum in downtown Long Grove!  A group of ladies from the church have partnered with the museum for a simple project sewing Sock Monkeys for their "stuff a monkey" party package.  

If you are interested in participating, see Laurie Potter, or email her at

Think About it

Using the questions below, take some time to reflect on what Pastor Santiago shared in his sermon this week.  

1. What is one thing that stood out to you from this week’s message?

2. Have you ever experienced a church split? How did it shape how you deal with church conflict?

3. Why is it important to be in community with other believers?

4. Does church feel like a safe place to you? How can you help create a church culture where others will feel comfortable being vulnerable with their struggles and hurts?

5. How does living in community with people who annoy, challenge, or irritate us help us grow in maturity? How can you learn to appreciate these “character builders” in your life?

6. How can you differentiate between spiritual abuse (or other forms of abuse) and merely learning to live with others in community? How can you confront abuse if you encounter it? How is doing so actually loving?

7. How can we pray for you?  Click here to submit a prayer request on our prayer wall.

Baptism is an outward expression of your inward faith, a public proclamation of your faith in Jesus.

We are planning a special baptism service on Sunday, January 8th.  If you are interested in being baptized at this special service, please contact us at, or by clicking here, and someone will be in touch with you. 

An update from Kyle & Meghan Winters

(H20 Ministires)

Below is a note we receive from Kyle and Meghan Winters.  We have supported the Winters for several years as they have worked with Reliant Ministries, bringing the Good News of the Gospel to college campuses.  Their time with Reliant is coming to an end, however, they have some new and exciting adventures ahead of them.  

To our dear partners in ministry,

We finally have a plan for our lives! It has been a roller coaster of a summer for our family, as we have tried to discern the best landing spot for our family in the Raleigh area - looking at schools, ministry and career opportunities, and housing in a somewhat wild market. I think being married to me has taken a decade off of poor Meghan's lifespan, but somehow I'm the one graying at an alarming rate these days 🤔.

So after journeying through possible careers of worship pastor, college minister, HR, math teacher, even P.E. teacher (my degree is math/P.E. education :) we have decided to stay in ministry and partner with a church in the area called Vintage, which started in Raleigh and has planted churches in the surrounding areas ( If you ever saw the infamous Jesus voice-over videos in the early 2000's, this is the church who produced them.

So I am super excited about helping them with 2 of their church plants - one in Apex (west of Raleigh) that happened right before the pandemic hit, and the other launching this fall in Chapel Hill. I will get to help with Sunday morning worship leading and service planning, work with community groups, and help the Chapel Hill church plant get off the ground (close to the UNC campus!). While I will be moving away from a college-focused church context, I am very excited to be involved in church-planting work, something Meghan and I have always had a passion for and even got our Masters in a few years ago 🤓. And I will hopefully get to interface with college students at UNC as part of the church planting work in Chapel Hill.

As far as support goes, I will be staying with Reliant Mission but at 30 hours a week, as Vintage is able to pay for the other 10-15 hours a week with their current church-planting funds & model.

We cannot express enough how much gratitude we have for your sacrifice and generosity in supporting Reliant on our behalf through our work at H2O and our transitional summer!!

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, and I will still be reaching out to you all sometime soon to say thank you and catch up.

With gratitude,

Kyle (& Meghan) Winters

The First know him

The Bible says in Romans 1:17“The Good News shows how God makes people right with himself” (NCV). How does God make us right with himself? This is called the Gospel, and there are three points.

First, we can’t make ourselves righteous.

Heaven is a perfect place. There’s no sin, sadness, evil, or injustice. But here’s the problem: We are imperfect, and God can’t let sinful people into heaven because then it would be full of sin, too.

Romans 3:20 says, “No one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are” (NLT).

The only people who think they can keep God’s laws are those that don’t know them because God’s laws are perfect, and none of us are perfect. We cannot be made right on our own, but God had a plan.

Second, God sent Jesus to pay for our sins so we could be declared righteous.

When you break man’s laws, you pay man’s penalty. When you break God’s laws, you pay God’s penalty, which is an eternity in hell. Somebody has to pay for all the things you’ve done in life that hurt other people, yourself, and God. But God has a plan. He says, “I’ll send my Son, Jesus, to pay the penalty. He will take your place so you don’t have to go to hell. You can be with me forever.”

Do you understand why the Gospel is called Good News? It means everything you’ve ever done or will ever do wrong in life has already been paid for by Jesus Christ on the cross. Through Jesus, you can be made right with God. “[God] saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy” (Titus 3:5 NLT).

Third, we have to accept by faith what God did for us.

To be made right with God, just believe and accept by faith that what Jesus did on the cross paid for your sins. Then, you are a part of God’s family. You can live the way he wants you to live now and then go to heaven in eternity. That is righteousness.

Romans 10:9-10 says, “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved” (NLT).

Isn't this wonderful news?! We can all be saved no matter who we are, what we’ve done, or how long we’ve done it. Today is the day to settle this. If you aren’t sure if you’re going to heaven when you die, please pray and ask God to forgive you of your sins and come into your heart today.
